Streaming video services are giving traditional cable and satellite TV stiff competition by delivering live sports and prime-time TV programming online, often for a drop in price, while premium channels like HBO and Showtime are available as separate streaming services or add-on bundles.
In some select locations, one or more of the networks — or even an entire service — may not be available. Where you can watch: U.
Premium channels, like HBO, Showtime, Starz, and Cinemax can be added for an additional fee, at prices that are significantly lower than competing services.
This gives the service a serious edge for current Hulu subscribers.
The packages can be a little confusing. You are definitely not getting twice the number of channels.
In terms of bonus features, Sling TV is pretty standard, but it does have some unique standouts. The first is Game Finder, a search feature on the Sling TV website that finds live and upcoming sports content available for your channel package and region.
Sling Orange subscribers will have access to a single stream, while Blue allows for up to three streams simultaneously.
Despite the extra cost, the good news is that cloud DVR is available on just about every Sling TV-supported device except for the Xfinity X1, and your recordings stick around as long as you maintain your account.

PS Vue lets users create up to 10 user profiles, with up to five streams at a time.
This lets you access all the entertainment options you have installed — PlayStation Vue included — from one place, including upcoming games for sports fans. Another consideration is the number of simultaneous streams if you share the account with multiple people.
